    You know what would be great? A UAA goal. From a forward.

    Many of the limited-run taproom only offerings are simply excellent. Most of their weaker beers are the regulars.

    Go Seawolves!

    Oh and Happy Birthday Suze! If you're ever in the Twin Cities area for a game, let me know and we can all meet for a beer.

    Diner from Grand Rapids • Orson Buggy • c 146 reviews

    KBC's management obviously has a fair amount of money to put such a nice facility in downtown Houghton. The building has an excellent atmosphere and the staff is polite and helpful. That's the end of the positive comments from me. Let's now discuss why I walked in the door in the first place: The Beer.
    The beer is mediocre at best. The main theme is they lack flavor and mouthfeel compared to other Michigan microbreweries such as The Mitten, Arcadia, Unruly Brewing, Kuhnhenn, Bell's, Founders, Short's, Right Brain, and Brickside. I've been going here since they opened and it's never really broken through with any remarkable beers.
    I keep wanting to like them because they distribute throughout the state and the rustic atmosphere is cool, but the only beer they serve that makes me half smile is the Widow Maker, but that's just an also-ran and little more. If you think KBC is competitive, check my story and visit a few of the other breweries I listed above and see if you agree they are at the back of the pack

    No fight intended just the truth.
    Then there's no excuse to not have an enjoyable time in Houghton, barring extenuating circumstances.

    I have. He provided us with free beer and I'm sure he sure he found some around Houghton when he was there. No doubt he would appreciate the Dog. The old school Dog, where you couldn't even see the ceiling.
